We can only deprecate CS this one time. If ISO 3166/MA re-reused it,
for a reunified Serbia and Montenegro or any other entity, we would have
to press a UN M.49 3-digit code element into service as a region subtag.
We did that on purpose.
In separate mails I will send the three necessary registration forms:
* to add region subtag RS
* to add region subtag ME
* to deprecate region subtag CS
Please note that CS will *not* have a Preferred-Value attached to it.
This is exactly the same situation as for region subtags NT and SU. It
should be evident that neither "Serbia" nor "Montenegro" is a suitable
replacement for "Serbia and Montenegro."
